Forum commenting and profile link is not working as the way it worked in 2005. Here is Why:
There are three ways of thinking for this topic, but all of them aim to one way. It’s the out-date of this kind of backlink building strategy.
A: You either keep up with what’s working now, or you go back to 2005 where that technique will work
B: Forum commenting and profile creating don’t really do jack. You can get some improvements with citations and/or finding higher quality backlinks.
C: Using Skyscraper techniques
You are using outdated techniques and it won’t help you to rank any keywords.
First, you should find a low competition keyword, then you have to write the best possible content using skyscraper techniques.
- Sitewide Backlinks Have Positive or Negative Impact on SEO?
- How risks you get when building PBN?
- Higher Ranking without Backlink Really Existed?
When it comes to link building I follow niche relevant
- blog commenting
- forum commenting
- email outreach
- broken link building
- guest posting
- web 2.0
All of sudden you can’t pitch someone to accept your guest posts. First, you have to make a relationship with that blog owner, value oriented blog commenting will help you for that purpose.
When it comes to making outreach for guest posts make sure that you see guest posts published in that website by a guest author recently.
Use ahrefs tool to determine from where your competitors are getting backlinks.
You should also follow the skyscraper technique while writing guest posts.
In every 100 guest post email, I send I get 5-10 backlinks. Use a personalized email for outreach, also use branded email with signature for outreach purpose.
Always remember you have to persuade others that you are providing them value then only you can get quality backlinks.
You don’t need hundreds of backlinks to rank on page 1. 5-10 high-quality relevant backlinks (natural) will do the job.
